Driving home from the cinema reviews

Mar 7, 2021

Based on a successful first entry in a crime novel series, The Dry has been a bit of a box office powerhouse - continuing its run even now, following a 1 January release. Here I ponder how the film works as an adaptation, the performances and how it elevates the material to feel cinematic.

Ratings System:
Longneck of Melbourne Bitter - an excellent film. Sublimely entertaining, meaningful or both. 
Pint of Kilkenny - a very good, highly recommended film. 
Stubby of Reschs - a good film and worth your time. 
Schooner of Carlton Draught - Not great aye. But perhaps an interesting idea or two. 
Schooner of Tooheys New - Shithouse
